Thanks for a great photo tips. Do you use tripod with your sporting event sessions?

Very rarely a tripod but I do use a monopod a lot with my 300 2.8 and 70-200 2.8.

Hi, Greg,
Did you set the ISO at auto since you had no concerns about that setting? Thanks!

Normally, I follow you advice, Greg, not to use Auto ISO. But during my last shooting, I checked it out and it went well. Leaving everything else on manuall, Auto ISO let me keep my attention to the model. So why do you recommend not to use Auto ISO?
And before I forget: Thanks for this video, it was great for me as an amateur, to listen to a pro talking about his work.
Best regards
Olaf

If you shoot Auto ISO you should just be on Program Mode too. You are letting the camera adjust your exposure at will. It takes all control from the exposure and relies on the camera to figure it out. No way!

Quoting Gregory Cazillo:

All right, I´d totally agree with you, if I were on Programm Mode (P/A/S). But I´m sure I was on M-Mode so I could leave shutterspeed and aperture in their settings and let the ISO jump up or down, depending on light-condition s. Any drawbacks using Auto-ISO that way?

Yes. What if you were shooting portraits indoors and the sun came out, forcing the meter to adjust for the additional light in the background. Your image would probably be underexposed and you might not have noticed until after the shoot when it is too late.

The flip side is if you were on full manual you would only have a brighter spot, not an underexposed image. Obviously this is only one example but it could happen anywhere. Auto ISO is a bad idea for any serious photographer.

Oh yeah, that´s convincing. So I can be lucky it went well that shooting anyway :-)
Thanks for this extra info!!!

Hi Greg

I noticed that on the balloon and golf shots you exif data shows a little bit of exposure compensation. Can you tell us why you needed to put some compensation in?

Sometimes I will use it in aperture or shutter priority mode. I'll do a video on it...
